Webinar: High-throughput CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Engineering in Primary T Cells

10.09.2018

DATE: September 18, 2018
TIME: 08:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT

CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing strategies have revolutionized our ability to engineer the genomes of diverse cell types and species for the robust functional interrogation of complex biological processes. Gene editing in primary T-cells represents an important research tool for the development of T-cell based immunotherapies, the study of the autoimmunity, the understanding of host-pathogen dynamics that drive HIV replication and latency, and creation of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells for the treatment of various cancers. While these cells have proven resistant to traditional transfection and transduction approaches for the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, recent advancements in ribonucleoprotein (RNP) delivery have allowed for efficient primary T-cell editing for the first time. In this webinar, we will present a workflow for the design and delivery of CRISPR-Cas9 RNPs to primary, human T-cells by electroporation. This platform supports the high-throughput, arrayed generation of hundreds of specific gene manipulations in only a few hours time without the use of recombinant DNA or lentiviruses and without the need for selection markers. This approach is widely adaptable to an array of downstream applications and protocols for the study of diverse T-cell processes.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Optimal conditions for CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing in primary T cells using RNPs
  • Rules for designing, synthesizing, and validating efficient guide RNAs
  • Considerations for high-throughput functional screening
  • How this approach is being employed to better understand HIV replication and pathogenesis

Curiox Biosystems Announces an Exciting Innovation in Flow Cytometry!

13.11.2017

New DA-Cell™, a novel cell processing technology, enables superior staining and retention of suspension cells using centrifuge-less washing.
The DA-Cell Platform is a breakthrough innovation device with a uniquely designed wall-less plate that utilizes the same DropArray technology from the original DA-Bead plate while incorporating additional patented features that allow for laminar-flow washing with a 96-well dual nozzle washer. Cells can be gently washed with this novel centrifuge-less process offering significant benefits over the traditional centrifuge method for flow cytometry applications.

  • Clear and easy gating and segregation of cell populations (or cells)
  • Cell retention > 95%
  • Consistent and reproducible data
  • Thorough washing in 2-4 minutes
